In 2013, the Town of Bridgewater, Nova Scotia submitted a Municipal Climate Action Plan (MCCAP) to the Province of Nova Scotia, aiming to answer the question “how may Bridgewater be impacted by a changing climate, and how could our community respond to this?” Bridgewater is anticipating warmer winters and summers, more precipitation, more heat waves, more droughts, more extreme precipitation, and it’s sea level to rise by 0.5m to 1.5m over 90 years. These climatic changes lead to concerns over water availability and quality, sea level rise and changes to the performance of infrastructure systems, creating a need for local governments to change the way they manage their capital assets and operations. After analyzing the extreme weather and the hazards faced by the community, the MCCAP identified nine different vulnerabilities and risks labelled as “adaptation concerns.” These concerns would be addressed by nineteen adaptation strategies to be implemented by the Town, local residents, community partners and by regional departments/agencies over a 5-7 year timeframe. Further partnerships with stakeholders and community groups that had specific expertise in areas related to climate change and adaptation were consulted and these strategies were arranged into themes of Preserve, Avoid, Protect, Accommodate and Managed retreat. In the November 2019 Sustainability Report to Council, staff reported that 80% of actions in the MCCAP have been either partially or fully implemented.
